COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal Release Series. Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. It’s a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

Like many Ninkasi beers, this is an ale more than a specific style, though we put it in the Northwest Pale category. A light toasted malt flavor is more reminiscent of a British Pale, but the hops are bright and very Northwest. Flavorful and easy to drink!

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bomber from Bevmo! Appearance: 3 fingers white head, golden straw color, slight lacing. Aroma: floral, caramel, light citrus. Palate: light body, little less than average carbonation, dry and bitter finish. Taste: slight sweetness to lasting bitterness. Overall, pretty unimpressed for Ninkasi, not very complex and balance is slightly off.

From the tasting notes. Bomber bottle. Pours orangey amber, thin head. Hop aroma of pines and general hoppiness, taste is malt and hops. Nicely put together, nothing special.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2009
4/18/09 at Hops & Props, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is sweet malt forward with a light earthy and citrus note. Appearance is hazy gold with a medium maintained white head. Flavor is an even citrus hop and simple sweet malt blend. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carb texture. Overall, very sessionable and simple, but to it’s benefit.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bomber. Aroma is pine, resinous hops and pineapple. Appearance is a peach golden color with an inch of pillowy white head. Nice lacing patterns around the glass. Taste starts off with toasted malt and orange citrus followed by dry herbal hops, pine, caramel and biscuits. Mouthfeel is dry and a little watery with medium carbonation. It finishes crisp and tangy with a strong bitter aftertaste. Overall flavor is refreshing although quite heavy on the tangy citrus flavors and astringently bitter. Decent spring session beer.

high_on_hops (799) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Pours a clear gold with a foamy white head and lacing. The aroma has some grass and pine notes with a similar flavor that leads to a slightly sweet finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
